amiable, if not direct. mitt romney, and i'm not comparing it to 1980 and ronald reagan being an appealing alternative, but jimmy carter, not a bad alternative. i think that could eat into the president's support and more than just the undecided voter support. what do you think? >> not necessarily. because what voters too often and we see this and a lot of data. they complain and gripe, especially well as down in the polls. when it comes down to it on election day they usually hold their nose, suck it up and vote for their party leader. that is why we have undecided voters. usually if you're a member of your party by election day you aren't going to vote for the guy neil: i know you do this in far more exhaustive detail that idea, but i am old and remember 1980 and to remember that the undecided voters at the time, jumped either ronald reagan or jimmy carter. it turns out a lot more did. i'm not saying that there is some truth to what you're saying. those who are leery of that party or the candidate of that party would jump, could jump if they are disenchanted enough with their own who cho
republican in massachusetts. >> ronald reagan. ronald reagan. >> rose: in the 84 campaign. >> right, right. >> one point on the president correcting, i kind of agree we'll probably lead that internally but boy oh boy, the pressure on joe biden and paul ryan because that debate, the stakes are higher across the board. both biden and ryan are probably doubling their debate prep time now. >> can i disagree. >> rose: yes. >> can i disagree with my good friend mike murphy on that. you know mike you were just a kid i know but in 1988, there was a really much claimed vice presidential debate, lloyd benson and dan quayle. lloyd benson cleaned up the room, one of the great lines in the history of debates and it didn't move the needle one iota. i don't think vice presidential debates will be fun to watch or great for us in t press, i don't think it matters. >> rose: go ahead. >> i was going to say there are a couple sort of issues where there could have been more illumination in terms of flushing thing out on the healthcare debate where mitt romney for the first time as you pointed out talked abou
and ease that ronald reagan projected and jimmy carter looked defensive. that's the impression that often lasts. >> even al gore and george w. bush is a good example of body language so much during those debates. al gore was up in the polls and had a series of very poor debate performances. >> al gore had been a very effe effective, aggressive debater. he was seen in the first debate as too aggressive. the sighs and the rest. in the second debate he was almost too laid back. by the third he had a just right approach by that time. those performances and all the other factors in the 2000 election held him back. >> humor. >> humor can be very important but it's something that has to -- some humorous lines probably are prescripted. there you go again, reagan, most people feel, was prepared. >> remember what lloyd benson said about -- >> yes. >> dan quayle. >> that famous line. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you are no jack kennedy. >> i just reread about all the debates, they prepared that line in advance because dan quayle made that comment over and over aga
reagan and carter in 1980. the confidence and ease that ronald reagan projected and jimmy carter looked a little bit defensive. that's the impression that lasts. >> even al gore and george w. bush i think is a good example of body language told so much during those debates. al gore was up in the polls and had a series of very poor debate performances. >> al gore had been a very effective, aggressive debater. in the first debate, he was seen as being too aggressive. the famous sighs and all the rest. in the second debate, he was almost too laid back. by the third he had a kind of just right approach, but by that time, those performances and all the other factors in the 2011 election held him back. >> how important is humor? >> it can be very important, but it's something that has to -- i guess some humorous lines probably are prescripted. there you go again by reagan most people feel w prepared. that, of course, is the magic. >> remember what lloyd benson said about dan quayle and president kennedy. >> yes, that was the famous line, jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no j
it was by ronald reagan and democratic speaker tip o'neill. but the basic structure is sound. but i want to talk about the values behind social security and medicare. and then talk about medicare, because that's the big driver of our deficits right now. you know, my grandmother -- some of you know -- helped to raise me. my grandparents did. my grandfather died a while back. my grandmother died three days before i was elected president. she was fiercely independent. she worked her way up only had a high-school education, started as a secretary, ended up being the vice president of a local bank. and she ended up living alone by choice. and the reason she could be independent was because of social security and medicare. she had worked all her life, put in this money, and understood that there was a basic guarantee, a floor under which she could not go. and that's the perspective i bring when i think about what's called entitlements. you know, the name itself implies some sort of dependency on the part of these folks. these are folks who've worked hard, like my grandmother, and there are millions of
in a partisan fashion, but there is precedent for it, all the way back to ronald reagan and tip o'neill when social security was going to go broke. it is not as if it has never happened before. it has to happen. >> do you think ronald reagan could be nominated as a republican candidate today, governor crist? >> it would be very difficult. i grew up admiring ron reagan. one of the things i admire most about him was his style, his kindness, his grace. i think we need to have more of that back into our national dialogue in politics. an ability to get a rock -- a long, cooperate, and respect each other. without that, it will be difficult to move things forward. but i am an optimist like senator mccain, and i believe we will get there because we have to. i want to thank governor schwarzenegger for inviting us all and having the leadership to do this. thank you, arnold. >> secretary richardson, do you think in johnson could be nominated as democratic candidate to president of the united states today? >> i do think so. the moderate wing, the moderate clinton-johnson -- i want to make one point, des
gone on to win after less-than-stellar first debate performances. ronald reagan in 1984, george w. bush in 2004. norah, charlie, gayle? >> bill plante, thank you. >>> also in denver, major garrett, national journalist white house correspondent. good morning. >> good morning. >> so, what does the romney campaign have to do now to take advantage of what everybody believes was a victory in the debate? >> well, charlie, there's a very simple answer to that, and two romney campaign officials told it to me before the debate started -- if this night works for us, our biggest challenge will be not dousing the flame we've set tonight, meaning they know that they've internally messed up advantages and advantageous moments mitt romney set for his campaign. so, they know now the most important thing between this debate and the next one is not to blow the momentum, to enhance it, blow on the fire and make it larger and not douse it. that's the biggest challenge the romney campaign faces. >> what's the challenge for the obama campaign? >> to bounce back. two very significant democrats i talked to las
that other presidents have gone on to win after less than stellar first debate performances. ronald reagan in 1984. george w. bush in 2004. norah, charlie, gayle. >> also in denver major garrett, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> what does the romney campaign have to do now to take advantage of what everybody believes was a victory in the debate? >> reporter: there's a very simple answer to that. two romney campaign officials told me. if this night works for us our biggest challenge is not dousing the flame we set tonight meaning they know they've internally messed up advantages and advantageous moments that romney separates his campaign. they know now the most important between this debate and the next one not to blow the momentum. to blow on that fire and make it larger and not douse it. >> what's the challenge for the obama campaign? >> reporter: to bounce back. two very significant democrats who i talked to last night looking at the debates said i would call the debate trading places. mitt romney's back was against the wall now the president's back is against the wall and he
